    Protein. Scrambled egg, cottage cheese and any thing green and leafy. Chopped spinach, broccoli and just a little bit of fruit because it can cause diarrhea. Also pick up some Poly Vi Sol liquid baby vitamins WITHOUT IRON. Give each little chickie One drop by beak in the morning and one drop at night for at least 2 weeks.

    When you have the time (HAHAHA we're all in that boat) purchase some powdered poultry vitamins that you can add to the waterer that all your chickens drink from to keep them healthy.

    I read your post and looked at the pictures. Does he still have a knot on his leg where the bleeding is coming from? This is really odd.

    Quote:Thanks I really think she ( yep we got it figured out she is a pullet [​IMG] ) needs some blood boosting.
    Yes the knot is still there but it is getting smaller. I'll get newer pictures when we change the bandage tomorrow. I have dealt with parrots for years chicken for only 5 months and I have never seen anything like this. At first the knot was like marble size it is flattening out it looks fleshier on top and more blood red where it is bleeding from the bottom

    If the knot is getting smaller and there is no sign of infection you are winning. YEAH:lol: Keep up the good work. She'll be fine in no time.
